the sequest tration cuts should they kick. in despite jeff sessions's effort not on the table in an effort to negotiate closing the closing gap between revenue and spending. the u.s. department of agriculture that administers the program says the increase in snap participation in the 2008 to 2010 period of economic decline including the recent recession was consistent with the increase in the previous period of economic decline. but as the unemployment rate dropped the number of those participating in snap continues to rise. skeptics point to one key factor. >> a lot of people don't realize one of the provisions in the 2009 economic stimulus bill was to essentially evas rate the work requirement -- eviscerate the work requirements for food stamp. today in most state there is to requirement whatsoever to work in exchange for benefits. >> the usda maintains that the snap program has a workbe requirement for able-body adults who don't have dependents and it's up to the state to enforce specific guidelines. chris? >> chris: thank you. things were calmer today in the nation's newest right to wo
bill clinton. governor, as always, thank you. >> thank you, good night. >> senator jeff sessions demanding the fiscal cliff talks be taken out of the shadows. why does he accuse the president of secret negotiations? that's next. many small business owners saying they can't pay for obamacare. but that's not the only thing about the health care law that has them worried. a las vegas business owner tells you about another big problem, one you probably haven't heard about before that may be your problem. plus, he's back. who could forget the drunk guy singing bohemian rhapsody in a police car. wait until you see what he is up to now. you don't want to miss this. it istory of moms, has ever turned down a handmade ornament. that's why we sat up santa's wonderland at bass pro shops. kids can get their free picture with santa, and this week make a... all for free. >> greta: what is the big secret about the fiscal cliff? senator jeff sessions blasting president obama and congressional leaders for holding secret talks. he joins us. what do you moon by secret? >> these talks are -- these ta
at the beginning of a senate they adopt the rules and they can by a majority of rules. i want to bring in jeff merkley. senator, good morning. you are not trying to scrap the filibuster. tell me what your goal is in the reforms that you have proposed. >> yes. we're trying to make the filibuster actually work the way it was intended. that is, that folks have to make their case known before their colleagues, before the american public. that they can't simply obstruct, use a filibuster, the silent filibuster we have now to obstruct bills and kill bills in the middle of the night. so clearing the path to the floor enhances debate. getting things to conference committee certainly doesn't subtract from debate and moves the process forward. the talking filibuster says that if you're going to obstruct or say there should be more debate, you have to make your case and the public can weigh in on whether you're a hero or a bum. >> if a cable news viewer has woken up early and they're saying, why am i watching these people talk about how they're going to run their meetings? what are the substantive takes
comments on the state of china's economy. why jeff immelt says, communism works. gregg: hmmm. they said you had to pass it to find out what's in it. well now the new hidden fee in the new health care law that you will have to pay for. martha: and the hollywood movie about the hunt for bin laden. the newest controversy about the flick upsetting liberals this time. listen. >> we'll never find him. he is one of the newest copd makes it hard to breathe, but with advair, i'm breathing better. so now i can be in the scene. advair is clinically proven to help significantly improve lung function. unlike most copd medications, advair contains both an anti-inflammatory and a long-acting bronchodilator working together to help improve your lung function all day. advair won't replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms and should not be used more than twice a day. people with copd taking advair may have a higher chance of pneumonia. advair may increase your risk of osteoporosis and some eye problems. tell your doctor if you have a heart condition or high blood pressure before taking advair. if you
is the big secret about the fiscal cliff? senator jeff sessions blasting president obama and congressional leaders for holding secret talks. he joins us. what do you moon by secret? >> these talks are -- these talks are going on somebody leaked part of what is going on some sort of outline from the white house that seeps to be unacceptable to the republicans. why don't we see the whole plan? why doesn't the american people know what the president would like to see as the final idea for america's financial future? >> greta: the interesting thing is in some ways sometimes you want to have a secret meeting so you can speak candidly. the problem is, we've had so many secret meetings. the super committee, the gang of six, the gang of eight, committees now, the problem is i might be for these secret discussions about the fiscal cliff if any within had worked. we have a history repleat with failure. i agree, it should be out in the open. >> first of all, these secret talks violate the principle of american government that would be open to every city county school board has open meeting laws you a
. jeff, moments ago, actually, erskine bowles, they named this the erskine bowles counter offer said in an interview this is kabuki theater. if both sides got an agreement the way that washington is too quickly, their own side would kill them because they wouldn't think they had negotiated hard enough. they have to go through the exchange. we are in the early stages of the dance to take us a little while. >> there is some truth to that. there is posturing on both sides of this. the white house and speaker bane side. there are 29 days left. business world looking for signal from washington, not much time at all. but in washington that is all the time in the world. this comes down to something on the cusp of christmas, christmas eve or new year's eve. there is a risk for both sides off the cliff. some say the burden is on the republicans that come to the deal. but big part of what the president second term is like. what he can do on a variety of other things is shaped by what happens here. there is a significant risk and students for both sides. >> to that point. there are republicans
at will, so, i question whether that will happen. >>trace: we will find out. jeff, good of you, sir. >>guest: my pleasure. >>trace: there is breaking news and new violence in egypt today. protests rocked the regime of the new president soon after his sudden power grab. now there is word that some of his top advisors have quit. there also are reports that someone set the muslim brotherhood party office on fire. we are live in cairo coming up. plus, big developments in the case of the mom who police say pulled her cancer stricken daughter right out of the hospital. now the girl's father reportedly says she has left the country. that is coming up. >>trace: this is "studio b" and time for the top of the news. there is breaking news now in egypt. state-run tv is reporting that witnesses say masked men set fire to the headquarters of the muslim brotherhood in eastern egypt. the controversial president morsi was the leaders of that group before he resigned after winning the election. two weeks ago, the new president made himself a dictator, giving himself absolute power and tensions is bee

clear that founder jeff bezos and his notoriously secretive company had bigger plans. they started expanding in the late 1990s into videos, music, games, electronics, kitchenware, clothing, shoes, jewelry, business services, information storage. amazon turned the corner to profitability in 2002, and today, amazon is a $100 billion global company. and though bezos declined our request for an interview, he recently told "fortune" magazine's andy serwer -- >> our goal is to be the most customer obsessed company. is there someone doing some element better than we? if so, how do we improve? >> online shopping is still only 10% of total retail. >> reporter: meaning amazon in all likelihood is just getting started. ben stein told me recently he has never seen a company dominate a market quite the way amazon is right now. this is a huge, huge story this holiday season. the big question, of course, is, what's going to happen to all the jobs that go in the traditional brick and mortar stores? we don't really know. will they go away? will there be more of them? find out more of those answers
and jeff bezos. and it's going to double every couple of years and continue and roll through the economy, so you're going to have a digital revolution with artificial intelligence, voice recognition, things that transform the way we live our lives no matter, even if the economy keeps growing at 1% or 2%, one big question, is that growth and innovation going to happen here in the united states or more of it overseas in places like china? >> yeah, well, take this robotic device i just-- this is a medical device and under the obamacare law, medical devices will be subject to a tax because they have to pay for obamacare. >> paul: yes. >> this is the sort of thing, if we keep doing will suppress the growth of technology in this country and then again, there's the issue of immigration policies. a lot of this technology driven by engineers who come from asia, silicon valley and has been the result of immigration into the united states. if we don't stand in the front of these things, we can grow. >> paul: dan, thank you. coming up in our second half hour, a look ahead to 2013. is the economy poi
. jeff, first to you, once the supreme court makes that final decision in the spring, maybe by june at the end of the term, we will know whether or not same sex marriage will be legal, not only in those states like new york state or maryland or iowa where it is legal, but throughout the united states. >> it is a possibility, there are limited possibilities. the court specifically took nose in this case, whether the question of whether the people defending the law in california even have the right to be in court. do they have standing. they could simply rule that the people defending the law don't have standing. that wouldn't even deal with the issue of the constitutionality of same sex marriage. that would be a procedural ruling that would allow the court to duck the issue of is there a constitutional right for gay people to get married. so it's a possility that all 50 states could be ordered to have same sex marriage, but it's also a possibility that the court could duck that issue all together. >> obviously we have to wait to see what the nine justices decide. gloria, you've done
in the senate race? you have jeff flake, a longtime incumbent who has a track record, an interesting truckload on the immigration issue. talk about the way latinos voted in there and the way immigration played. >> you. well, to answer your question why did flake when, it really boils down to name recognition. flake as you indicated, is a well-known name in arizona politics. serving sense, you know, a decade, and the feminine goes way back. his heritage goes way back to the pioneers. that's another thing, factor to keep in mind just the level of enthusiasm among mormon voters were voting for jeff flake but also get mitt romney on the ballot, a mormon candidate. to get high levels of enthusiasm among mormon, the mormon electorate to vote for the two candidates, and that was a significant hurdle for carmona, and obama's campaign to overcome in arizona. >> let's delve into that really briefly because it seems like there is, it seems like there's a potential path for victory for republicans that doesn't necessarily involve latino voters if they can find other ways to tap in and expand their bases.
of united states taxpayers' money dropped on the senate next thursd thursday. >> alisyn: he wants to -- jeff sessions is saying the real fiscal cliff deadline should be when the lawmakers return from break, thursday. if the deal is not proposed by then, there won't be enough time to review and ratify it. we can't afford to vote on a deal without thoroughly reading it first. well, is a serial killer on the loose this morning in michigan? there are new concerns being raised because police just made another gruesome discovery in a drain pipe. this is the second time in four months that they've found human remains there. police have now sent the remains to a lab in texas. and the investigators want today determine if the retains matched body parts which belonged to an unidentified female. one of the president's biggest backers on capitol hill, the progress of election day on immigration reform, in a new interview, democratic illinois congressman gutierrez says, quote, it's great that eva longoria is it out there meeting with the president, but maybe meeting some of the immigrant community to pol
this program. here is what senator jeff sessions told me. >> it's a guaranteed thing. it's an entitlement program. that means if you meet the income qualifications, the government must give you the money. whether the government has any money to give you or not. if they don't they have to borrow it. that's what we're doing. >> reporter: by the way the food stamp program is exempt from sequestration. even if we go over the fiscal cliff those benefits will still be paid out even if lawmakers don't reach a deal. senator sessions did try to pass something in the senate that would have put food stamps on the table for the fiscal cliff negotiations and failed in the senate. jenna: let me ask you that is it part of the fiscal cliff negotiations or are food stamps in their own column right now? >> reporter: he tried. it is considered an entitlement program so it has to be funded. he did try to get the specific measure passed in the senate and it failed. jenna: any response from the administration on this? >> reporter: we reached out to the white house on this and want to give them opportunity to e
is -- is this on? >> my name is jeff schrader and i work for the natural gas industry. i would like to address the water issue and then a quick question on the wealth that uses about the same amount of water on the golf course in about three weeks with that energy we are producing a lot more natural gas that's creating a tremendous amount of jobs in this country and bringing manufacturing back. so, it kind of goes back to what you're saying on the trade-off and the other factors. i did have a question that you mentioned on corn ethanol that creates are other ethanol creative from nitrous oxide? >> i don't know about that. i do know there are other biofuels that have, and one of them ironically enough is the genetically modified algae which is able to take carbon dioxide and convert it into fatty acids which is the soul, by yo de seÓul so there are other -- don't lump all of the biofuels together because they are not all the same converting corn into ethanol seems to be a bad idea there are other biofuels that may have potential. >> am i terse oxide is the least of the problems of you look at
base is. the tea party isn't one entity, it is a label given to a movement. stuart: jeff, come join us again as this thing plays out as it will. thank you. >> thank you. stuart: you certainly have fiscal cliff fatigue, got it. so next, my take on foreigners. >> you know, if you're a businessman, how do you decide what you are going to do with your business this year because you don't know how much you are going to be paying taxes. if you are a consumer, how do you decide what you are going to be spending your money on in the up coming year? the level of uncertainty i think is unprecedented. stuart: well said, kelly jane, she was in our last hour, what you can expect in the new year if congress doesn't reach some kind of fiscal deal by midnight. we just reported that even the irs is waiting to hear what to tell employers to withhold from our paychecks. we still don't know, what is it, about 14 hours, 13 hours left to go. that's it. all right, everybody, time for a market check. where are we right now? dead flat still with a hint of what might happen on the fiscal cliff negotiations. thi
and member of the house foreign affairs committee, mr. jeff duncan. good to have you on. first of all, why haven't we heard from hillary clinton? i understand concussions. i know them all too well. but really? three, four weeks now to testify? >> well, she needs to testify and i think she will. i'm optimistic she will. her office verified she was ill. i know the travel schedule, she gets worn down. i'll give her the benefit of the doubt. she needs to come testify. she was the person in charge at the department of state on september 11 when the attack in benghazi happened. and there are questions that need to be answered. >> kelly: there have been some people who criticized hillary clinton for what happened in benghazi and because of that, there has been the innuendo that she didn't want to testify. however, i don't see that being part of her character. she will testify this month, because she would like to put this to rest before she actually retires. >> i think she will. i think it's about her legacy now. she was in charge. i think she's willing to come and testify. she always ha
, jeff bingaman, of new mexico, someone who's always brought intellectual rigor, a lawyer's insistence on thoroughness and a real commitment to people. it's been an honor and a pleasure to work with him on the help committee, especially on the affordable care act. i was proud to support him all that he did, particularly in developing and focusing on the health work force for the future. i knew i could count on jeff in the committee and on the floor as one of those men that i refer to as the ga gallahads, where mn of quality always support we women as we sought equality. our initiatives to end discrimination against women in the health care and in the workplace were some of our proudest achievements in working together. i also would like to comment about jon kyl. i've worked across the aisle from jon kyl and i've been seated across the table from him at everything from bible study group to the senate intelligence committee. we studied the words of the bible together to make ourselves better and we worked in our committees to make the world better. we lived through september 11th and the
with which to like the whole process and then jeff donated hundreds of dollars worth of campbell's to help them out and out there raising more funds for the shelter. this is the type of state. just as i personally since i have been here have stood with the people of the gulf coast or the people of joplin misery or after a tornado ravage the community. it's who we are, what we do is a country, and it's what truly gives the meeting to the united states of america. thank you. >> thank you so much. all of our speakers have been extraordinary, and i no -- i am going to, with your permission, include a lot of these photographs in our records. okay. okay. and our last senator to speak before we head to our house colleagues will be senator blumenthal from connecticut. we are so delighted that you could be here. go right ahead. >> thank you very much. i want to thank you and ranking member and half for today's hearing. my colleagues to have stated so eloquently what happened in new york and new jersey, connecticut , share their faith although the lack -- national media coverage may give the impress
is the minister, the father is the father, the sun is the son and jeff government. so if everyone in his, and i should say or her place though confucianism doesn't leave much fun for the element. and that within the region and with the world as china looks at, a sense of harmony, japan would be law, that sense of harmony and how you would achieve it is that their frustration is that the work is not just acquiescing to the notion that they are a rich country, that they are returning, that they're powerful, that they want respect. and they want to see the world kind of step back and give it greater latitude, but doesn't see this. this is what i think whether i personally think we are on a collision course. because when you look at what china's expectations of the world are, you also look at its paranoia, you look at jim, i'd love to hear utah, you're such an expert insider, what's going on in the cyber world. you see something which seems hard to me, despite her best efforts in not one to replace history, that the rise of a great power usually and often leads to messiness. usually and often leads
to ignore the latino vote, and now that jeff flake is in office it will be interesting to watch his -- whether he comes back home to his original pakistan being an advocate for immigration reform. when he made the run for the u.s. senate seat, given the politics of arizona, he shifted back and became a border hawk, much like john mccain in 2008, build that dang fence first now. he is safely elected he might be one of the key runs that brings up and pushes for comprehensive immigration reform in the u.s. senate, and one interesting survey note that came from the latino decisions poll on election eve, was a question that asked latino voters in arizona about their willingness to vote for republicans if they took a leadership rope on comprehensive immigration reform, and 39% of latino voters said if the republican part ensured passage of immigration reform that would make them more likely to vote for the republican party, and that tells republicans in arizona that, rather than pursuing a strategy that perhaps arpaio and russell pearce chose to do in the pass anyway want to rethink their
distributors like comcast pay $30 billion in affiliate fees, that's your cable bill. >> jeff said he wasn't worried about cord cutters, worried about never cords, i don't know the phrase, the idea there's a whole generation that never had the cord to begin with. >> yeah. those are college kids, maybe economic reasons can't find a job, can't afford cable. i couldn't afford cable in college. some economic reasons for that. >> you think it's economic, you don't think it's cultural, the way an entire generation will grow up? >> i don't. cable, still 5 1/2 hours a day of tv. on the margin, you may have some folks that try to string it together to try not to subscribe to cable and there's not enough out there and sports is the hammer that keeps you going. >> thanks. >>> the holiday season traditionally busy one at the box office. this year's winner s and losers next. . you know how to mix business... with business. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle. and go. you can even take a full-size or above. and still pay the mid-size price. i could ge
